Biggelaar Performance-Italianiron or Bii-Rad Cafe Racer with Arizona Title


For purchase is my Biggelaar Performance-Italianiron Cafe Racer that we built as a joint effort. My son purchased the bike but as a profesisonal chef and not having ridden it, he has decided to sell it. Team Biggelaar in The Netherlands raced the Ducati ST3 engine that is one one of the factory's lightest engines and after making some significant enhancements to the engine used it in Euro Stock classes and with great success. As a result, when I was speculating about my next project, Toine stated that he would take the stock ST3 engine that I had just purchased and build it into a "wolf in sheep's clothing". And so he did. Blog posts on our build were written on 14 Sept 19, 31 Jan 18 and 13 Aug 17.

At Italianiron, we took a Ducati 848 rolling chassis that is one of the factory's lightest chassis and converted it to take the trellis Monster S2R swingarm and built the bike into a light weight Cafe Racer. As Toine and Pepo of Radical Ducati fame had previously worked together, we were able to get updated copies of the Radical fiberglass bodywork. We shaved 55 pounds off of a stock ST3 as our Bii-Rad weighs 345 lbs wet or 157 kg.

I like to use this more comprehensive or expanded definition of the term "Cafe Racer" as it stems from the process of racing where every team desires every advantage whether it be an engine, suspension, frame, wheel or braking modification so that their bike the most efficient, competitive and offering the best power-to-weight ratios. However, this goal was also at the heart of the efforts of the original Cafe Racers, I believe.
